Show Kathy the money!
A new report from Life & Style claims that Kathy Hilton wants a whopping $2 million to return for season 12 of the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
The socialite joined the show in October 2020 as a friend of the Housewives and quickly became a fan favorite with her humor and quirky personality. Not to mention the glamour and luxe lifestyle she brought to the show.
“Kathy’s done her homework,” says the insider. “Atlanta’s Kandi Burruss and New York City’s alum Bethenny Frankel made way over $1 million per season, so Kathy’s people have told Bravo she wants to be paid somewhere in that range.”
And if Bravo isn’t willing to pay up, Kyle Richards’ older sister is prepared to walk away from the show.
“The way Kathy sees it, she has nothing to lose,” adds the insider. “While doing the show was fun, she doesn’t need it. She can easily go back to her fabulous life without missing a beat.”
Meanwhile, Kathy has continued to play coy when asked if she’s returning for season 12.
“I don’t know what I’m doing tomorrow,” she recently said.
She then told E! News, “The reason I’m not back yet is I’ve just been doing a wedding. Everybody speculates and all that, but I’ve been busy and haven’t had a chance to really focus and talk with my team and see, you know, what’s going on.”
“I absolutely love the show; I have to tell you,” she added. “A lot of people will be on a show, and then they’ll talk about it, or they’ll badmouth it, [but] I loved all of the girls. I loved the crew in that season. I cannot make one complaint.”
RHOBH will return to Bravo for season 12 in 2022.
